Forum: etree Subject: Track listing Order

Hello

I was wondering if it is possible to change the track order of a show. Or is it only done alphabetically?

Here is the show I am working with.
http://www.archive.org/details/BarefootTruthAndPeteFrancisofDispatch-LiveAtTheSaint-March14

Also...Is it possible to add a song to an uploaded show? I have one more song that I would like to add to this show.

Thank you for your help!!!

~Garrett

tracks are sorted alphabetically, so you usually start the filenames with track numbers.
how to make changes:

if you are going to rename your files, you will have to delete all derived files (ogg, 64kbps mp3s, m3u, zip) and after you apply all changes, you'll need to rederive.

Well, to be precise, you usually start with band name or id, performance date, and then disk/track number. That way, if you download multiple shows to the same folder, they all sort together.

I'm not sure if it's still the official standard for The Archive, but these naming standards certainly used to be, and are still probably preferred.
